I had my appointment with dr bolognese. It seems he has diagnosed me with cci. I want to see it in writing before I celebrate too much, but he said something along the lines of your measurements being consistent with cci, and said while my response to traction is indicative of cci, and my need for a collar, that he would require further testing, including invasive cervical traction, before doing surgery. Rather conservative surgeon, but I think he really knows what he’s doing. Will also send scans to gilete.
